National Catch-Up – Thomas Edition

Just like I did with Greg Maddux, and as I will do two more times after this, I am trying to use the looming NSCC as an excuse to show off some of the cards that I bought at my first National Convention back in 2015. I have a bunch of cards from 4 years […]

National Catch-Up – Maddux Edition

With the 2019 National fast approaching, I realized that I have some work to do. Not only do I have to make sure that my want lists are completely up to date (and accessible easily through my phone on the show floor without an internet connection), but I have to get my supplies and any […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 5 of 5

I have a couple trade irons in the fire and recently got a couple packages from people as well. I’ve been away for a couple weeks due to some work things and haven’t fully logged everything. I also need to get some return packages together when I can find a little bit of a chance. […]

Introducing the Jason Hammel Collection

This is part thirteen of a twenty-five part series chronicling my budding collections of the 2016 World Series champion Cubs. Obviously, I’ve already starting showing off some of those cards, but I wanted to offer a formal introduction to the various players. With my legacy player collections, I’m still going to attempt to show every […]

March 2019 Ebay Wins

I’ve been falling behind on a lot of card stuff lately. I’ve been heavily investing my time in video games lately. A little over a year ago, I decided to take the plunge and collect all of the U.S. released Original Game Boy games. If you’re going to collect games, you might as well play […]

Getting Ahead Of The Inevitable

Look, I know it’s coming. What’s the point in trying to deny it? There are times when I think I’m in the clear, but then when I least expect it…Blam!

Another trade package from Kerry, also known as Madding, also known as Cards on Cards arrives. It’s like he doesn’t even care that I’ve just […]

Starting To Sample My Latest Sportlots Order

A few months ago, I went on a little bit of a credit spending spree on Sportlots. I had (and still have) a good chunk of change in my account from selling over the years and not cashing out for far too long. I figured it was time to flesh out my collections a bit […]

It’s Fine

I know that my previous post was a celebratory one, but I haven’t been doing great mentally the past couple days. I’ve touched on this before and at some point I’ll do a deeper dive on things as well, but there are times when I simply don’t want to continue with the blog. It’s always […]

Anniversary Cards

This week saw my 8th wedding anniversary come and go. My wife and I celebrated the actual day with little fanfare. We went out to eat at this 24-hour Mexican restaurant that we went to a lot when we first started dating, which was a complete departure from our usual tactic of finding a highly-rated […]

Can’t Spell “Really Big Card Trade” Without GCRL – Part 4

You all know the deal by now. I try to figure out a way to introduce the same blogger and trade package after doing so a few times before. I post some links and then get into showing the cards.

So, allow me to welcome back cards from Jim, who was originally known for his […]
